It is another Saturday night. We have had another good day with the kids. It started out at a little diner close to home where I take my daughters every Saturday morning for breakfast.
It ended with a trip to Southlake where they were having an art show. How I would love to have a little booth next year and meet people and sell some art.
I noticed some people were closed off to those coming by. Almost tired of it, just waiting by the credit card machine.
Others were alive in their art and greeting people anxious to meet them. I love to see people who love what they do no matter what it is.
On a different and personal note, I would like to ask for your prayers.
While I have had tremendous healing, there are some things that I will live with for the rest of my life and pain is one of them. We all have it to different degrees and many if not most people are far worse than I am, but mine has returned with a vengeance. I do not mean to whine, I just don't want to hide again, and I could use some prayer power.
Today, as I was working on The Immortal: the true story of Santa Claus (working title), I came to a place where he is pushed to the edge. As I wondered if it was too hard of a push, I remembered that just before something big in The Lord's plan for an individual He pushes hard and prepares them.
Could I ask if you would pray for me. He is pushing me hard and my body is as well.
It is almost time for what ever it is The Lord has in store for me, I think.
I really have no idea what it is exactly but I feel it coming and maybe it is the stress of life or He is preparing but either way I could use a few extra words in my favor please.
I am praying for you as I know He must be preparing you as well because we are all connected and there are no 'stars' this time around. We all will play a role in healing the world.
I told Tania yesterday that I want to start speaking at Churches. First, those around here that would have me. Synagogues as well.
I feel a pressure I have never felt. Work seems meaningless. I feel as though I am not doing enough to help those in peril.
There is a holocaust going on. What am I doing beside talking about it? What would Gandhi, Bonhoeffer or King be doing right now?
What would Christ be doing?
If what we are engaged in is not Eternal in nature, why are we doing it?
How much of my job is eternal in nature? We try to make it all count, but it seems so little at times. We just did the root this week. My staff practically gave their blood to get this on the air and to do it right. Is it enough?
Do I sin by wanting to play a larger role? Isn't what He gave me exactly what He wants me to have? YES! So why ask for more?
I have been giving speeches lately and they have changed in tone. I am almost not 'driving' when I speak lately. It is apparent to friends and family that know me when my hands are off the wheel. It is an amazing feeling.
Something is coming. I kind of know what it is. Billy Graham and I spoke about it five years ago. How it comes together I do not know. I feel it.
Do you feel your calling getting closer?
Hopefully we can see each other this summer. I am working on a few things that might bring me in your area.
In the meantime, let us pray for one another. Pray for those who are being persecuted or tortured for His sake tonight. Let us pray for their families.
Pray for our president and the candidates for 2016. Pray for the congress, secret service and all those who are living a life of error.
Let us pray for healing and forgiveness of our faults, that we may be better people tomorrow than today and that our hearts will be utterly transformed. Let us thank The Lord for the gift that will fill our heart with love and compassion for those who despise us and those we supposedly hate.
Let us proclaim Peace, love and freedom throughout the land and among all her inhabitants.
From Dallas ... Goodnight America.
